Watch Iceage’s Japanese Flower Art-Inspired Video for ‘Under The Sun’

Danish rockers work with “flower freeze” artist Azuma Makoto on lo-fi clip

Elias Ronnenfelt holds a colorful bouquet as he and his bandmates perform on a stage of flowers in the new Iceage video for “Under the Sun.” The track is the new single from the Danish rock band’s fourth album, Beyondless.

The video was shot in Tokyo during Iceage’s “Opening Nights” residencies, an inter-continental exhibition that was staged in several cities including NYC and Los Angeles. In this clip, the band collaborates with famed floral artist Makoto Azuma, whose famous frozen flower sculptures set the backdrop for the dramatic tune.

Azuma, a Japanese floral artist based in Tokyo, is known for his botanical sculptures. He frequently collaborates with fashion brands, including Helmut Lang, Dries Van Noten and Fendi. The artist hand-selected Iceage for his flower-music installation series, which was titled “Crazy Garden x Iceage.”

Since its release in May, Iceage released four singles from Beyondless, including “Pain Killer” and “Catch It.” Iceage are in the midst of an expansive European and North American tour, where they’re playing dates with bands like the Black Lips, Astrid Sonne and Surfbort. The band will perform at several European festivals, including End of the Road Festival, Leffingeleuren Festival and Journey Festival, which takes place in their hometown.
